Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $235,000)

The Congressionally Selected Awards Program, authorized by the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects selected by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-8, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 09 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY09 Omnibus Appropriations Act.

Created by the Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Alaska Public Safety Information Network (APSIN) supports court and law enforcement access to criminal justice information statewide. The Alaska State Troopers DPS will use the FY 2009 Congressionally Selected Award to provide additional storage, migrate and add data to the database, and integrate a security system to provide users with secure remote access. DPS will ensure continued remote access to centralized criminal justice information, allowing access to court records by criminal justice and law enforcement agencies and users within the state.
